It’s hard to let go. Amidst political spiral—combined with urban sprawl and proliferation of post-modern consumerism—our relationships with community and the work we do must remain strong. This is my gift to the first “Indigenous Research Methods” class at UW.
Never forget the importance of fanua
For the peoples that came before us
For communities that are very much alive and fighting
Now as I transcend the sacred vā that is moana,
Take great care of all that makes
You and I human
We in this together.
